Daniel 6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.
Let’s consider Daniel for a moment. Here is one of the great rulers of the Persian empire, in charge of the King’s affairs and of the affairs of the entire government. If anyone is really busy — it’s Daniel! But in spite of all this responsibility, he makes it a point to set himself apart from the world and pray three times a day.
This really struck me. I mean, how busy are we — really? And busy doing what?
So my conclusion: If we are neglecting to meet personally with our God, then we’re simply doing more than He intended! Let’s keep our priorities in order and be a people of prayer! There is so much work to be done, but not at the expense of our most important relationship.
